not dealt with. >> this could be another new problem for some moderate voter, wayne lapierre, he runs the nra. i want to read you a snippet of this op-ed piece. "after hurricane sandy we saw the hellish world that the gun prohibitionists see as their utopia, looters ran wild in south brooklyn." didn't happen. "there was food, water, electricities, hurricanes, tornadoes, riots, terrorists, gangs, lone criminals, these are perils we are sure to face. not just maybes. it's not paranoia to buy a gun, it's survival, responsible behavior and it's time we encourage law-abiding americans to do just that." many including joe scarborough said the op-ed was laced with "racial overtones" among other things. what is wayne lapierre doing for the republican party? >> wayne lapierre is representing his organization. whether he's trying to fold into his organization. >> long identified with the gop. >> there's a difference between the nra and the rnc. he's doing what he's paid to do and representing it. the nice thing the democrats are doing are lopping the two groups together so i do understand that
humor of wayne lapierre over the last few weeks. but here's a black comedian on this. >> you don't need gun control. we need bullet control. we need to control the bullets. that's right. i think all bullets should cost $5,000. $5,000. you know why? because if it costs $5,000, there'd be no more innocent bystanders. >> when even comedians and crooners like tony bennett are begging for action, are you becoming more optimistic that the nation is prepared now to do something substantive on this issue? >> well, i am. i'm hopeful at least. optimism may be a shallow virtue fair compared to hope. but i think the evidence is growing in line with people's sentiments across this nation who are simply fed up. we want common sense gun control. we want a president who uses his bul bully pulpit to talk about the disregard of common sense for those people who are promoting, you know, the loud and vigilant and aggressive no holds barred approach to guns. the nra has to be brought into line here. most americans think we want to protect the second amendment. we don't want to undermine it, but at the same
they are framing these issues in that press conference we saw several weeks ago with wayne lapierre, it's like night and day. they saw the numbers and you have aired them on the network showing the nra becoming increasingly unpopular and they knew they needed to change their approach. what they are trying to do is do it in a more explanatory tone so people understand. they know the president is still fairly popular, at least compared to the rest of his term and other presidents in their second term right now. they know they need to be smarter than having a 30-minute long press conference. they didn't take any questions, just trying to tell the public what to think. >> shira, jacki, thanks to both of you. >> thank you. >> thank you. >>> the confirmation for treasury nominee jack lew is underway. he's going to succeed secretary timothy geithner. lawmakers are expected to question him about his stint at citigroup between the clinton and obama administrations. they could save a lot of money on their car insurance by switching to geico...they may even make you their best man. may i have the rings p
in the hearings this week on gun control. and you're also going to be speaking to wayne lapierre of the nra. these were very emotional hearings over this weekend. what do you want to talk to them about on sunday, chris? >> well, i guess, you know, look, every day you guys, because you cover it every day, there is another act of violence. another person who, you know, walks into a school, walks into a mall, walks into a work place, and starts shooting it up. you know, really? can we do nothing about it? is it impossible to? i don't know that i know necessarily what the answer is, whether it is more background checks. whether it is better mental health. the president obviously refused to call out his friend on in hollywood about all the violence and videogames and movies. can we, is it possible, and i hope, and in expanded you know, half an hour of fox news sunday, the first half hour when we talk to the two guests is it possible to find any common ground, sensible solutions? i know lapierre will never go for an assault weapons ban which kelly wants and obviously other people want but is ther
the difference. tonight, they have to decide whether they want to be the party of ronald reagan or wayne lapierre. >> i'm not sure ronald reagan could get elected today. >> there's no doubt ronald reagan would support universal background checks. who doesn't support universal background checks? who doesn't support the end of gun trafficking? you know who doesn't support it? people inside the little republican bubble in the house of representatives and some democrats who are scared, jim. the numbers are overwhelming. this is a 90-10 issue now. >> thick wh i think what the pr wants to do with this speech tonight is continue to make republicans look cartoonish with gun control. what they would like to see tomorrow are images of victims you just painted sitting in the chamber side by side with representative stockman and ted nugent and whatever they will say after the speech and you know they will say extremely - ex-send yex the things that ted nugent will say. >> it plays into the president's hand. i always talk about we republicans having to win not northwest florida where i'm from. we will alway
there are these horrific tragedies like newtown, gun sales go up. >> stephanie: yeah we were saying that wayne lapierre does not even speak for nra members he speaks for the gun-buying lobby. 61% of americans want stricter gun control laws. did you see that sandy hook parent -- >> oh, yesterday he was testifying before -- >> stephanie: oh. holding the picture and crying. how are you a human and not -- and he was talking about banning assault weapons. how horrific was that to have to listen to him talk about the specific injuries his son suffered, and how he died and you know -- literally it's just heart breaking. [♪ "world news tonight" theme ♪] >> stephanie: oh another edition of you are not helping. >> okay. >> stephanie: idaho lawmakers force all adults into militias to protect gun rights. there's a problem solver. you will be shocked to know it's a republican lawmaker jim. he has proposed -- he feared the u.s. supreme court would change the definition of the second amendment and argued that the federal government could never take away people's guns if the idaho constitution
